Everything I've always heard and read is to let the "pros" do this for you. For example:

The payoff for the trouble simply isn't worth it, especially when it's so easy to find coffee that fits your palate. Because of the smoke, it's a messy proposition, best performed in a screened-in porch or garage. A high-quality result requires a pretty significant equipment investment... which sounds suspiciously similar to performing an appendectomy!

But, I suppose if you're someone who finds things like this fun and likes the challenge, go for it!

I'm a coffee connoisseur and I like to buy beans and grind them, but roasting my own is not my cup of tea. You can buy portable roasters on Amazon for under $300, but I have no idea how good they are.

I grind my beans but have no clue about roasting. But would love to hear how it is if you figure it out. Love a good cup of coffee.

Thanks for all the feedback. Was really thinking about doing it as a little local side gig(why I wanted to try doing the roasting myself). If I can mess with the taste I can really hone in on 2-3 flavors that I would test with my friends/family/etc. I would love to then sell a small amount eventually. Nothing ever super large, but a little side hustle that would be fun as well. I was looking into a couple different roasters that can do small batches, which is what I want to hone in on anyway.

I love caffeine....it’s my only true vice. Have loved a special brand of Kona coffee, that I had shipped to me for years, but it’s expensive. So I save it for weekends and special occasions. My daily morning is now “Kicking Horse” which is very available in local markets. I buy the “Kick Ass” beans, which I grind each morning. Great coffee.....consistent perfect roast. No need to roast.....find a great bean, grind it, you’ll be living large.......

Added: they have other roasts, other beans.....

Just get a burr grinder and try and buy fresh once a week and you'll be fine.

Yes. I make a latte every morning, 7 days a week. I own a Nuova Simonelli Musica espresso machine and a Nuova Simonelli MDX grinder.

Roasted beans have a shelf life of 2 weeks max. I prefer 1 week.

However, ground coffee have a shelf life of 5 minutes. Its important that you ground coffee as you make it.

As far as a burr grinder goes. Not sure about regular coffee, but for espressos, the grinder is more important than the espresso machine itself. Can not state the importance of a consistent grind with espressos.

I like my coffee how I like my women.

Hot and black,
Hot and all over my crotch when I'm driving,
Available in the morning, yet still keeps me up all night long,
Gone by 9AM
